The event is destined to go down in history as one of the most important and significant sightings of the century, not only because of the clarity and duration of these sightings, but also because of the numerous witnesses and videotapes of the event.
Russian news media covered the story of these bright twinkling lights in the sky, reporting however that the army claimed that these lights were training exercises, a story which was immediately debunked. In fact at one point the police were called and asked to deal with the UFO hovering 900 metres above the airport, which was disrupting flight traffic. When operatives arrived the ship had disappeared.
